Passione Toscana Rosso IGP (igt) Limited edition

This special vintage created from a selection of Merlot grapes has been bottled in a limited and numbered edition of these very particular heavy bottles in order to keep it better and longer. A real gem for collectors, wrapped in a label created by the famous Milanese artist Giuliano Grittini who was inspired by the works of our famous fellow countryman Leonardo Da Vinci.

Appearance deep ruby red, nose floral and fruit aromas well balanced with pepper spice and notes of vanilla and chocolate. Palate: Elegant and supple in the mouth, with a rich vein of smooth tannins supported by subtle toasty oak, and the conclusion is very lengthy. Serving suggestions game, roasts and aged cheese.
